Heroine was a bit of a pill with her grouchiness and push away personality. Our hero started off more of the beta variety until he gets going with the heroine and then talks back to her. It had me all,

“It is. Larkin makes the best black-bottom cupcakes. They’re little cheesecake-and-chocolate fat bombs.” Her eyes flicked up to regard him curiously. “What made you pick these two?”

This was even better than the first and that's mainly because Seth is as strong a draw as Emma was. And yes, this is one of those series where you really should read them in order. You'll just get so much more out of the story knowing Sam and Jake and the relationships built in that first book. Not that Castle doesn't take steps to refresh the reader's memory of those elements, but I don't think it's enough on its own to bear the weight placed on those existing relationships.

“When you find someone you want to walk it with, though, it can change everything. We’ve got to carry one other through the hard parts. Every little kiss matters ...”

The book opens with Emma Henry being intoxicated after having a little too much tequila at her sister’s bachelorette party. Newly plated Harvest Cove police officer, Seth Andersen, comes to rescue her. I remembered Emma from the first book being a little too uptight so to imagine this brunette party planner lying in the middle of

I found Emma more difficult to relate to than her sister Sam, from For the Longest Time. While intellectually understandable, Emma's reactions to other people and to traumatic events seemed way off. I was especially put off when Seth manages a violent, traumatic incident on duty and Emma's reaction was entirely self-centered. That said, Seth avoids being a cardboard 'vet with PTSD' character at every turn- although he too is a loner, he proves to be the more emotionally stable, generous, and sel ...more

Repeats, over and over, "This is my candy genre."

There's nothing particularly wrong with this, except for the fact that Emma keeps warning herself, this is going too fast, slow down, life isn't a romance novel (lol), and then of course everything works out fine because in fact this is a romance novel.

It's Romance Novel Lite, in a way: quiet and fairly drama-free, but what plot there is feels very familiar. If you must read about cops who are post-Army and running from their pasts, just read Virg

Every Little Kiss is the second installment in the Harvest Cove series and was a delightful read. Kendra Leigh Castle has embarked on a contemporary romance series and has produced a small town with interesting characters and dynamic relationships between sisters, mother-daughters and friends.

Emma Henry has always strived to be the good daughter and live an ordinary life unlike her sister and mother. All was well until she got a little drunk

While I really enjoyed the first book in this series, my biggest problem with this one was that I had a hard time connecting with Emma in that I really didn't care if she found her happily-ever-after. As a type A person myself, I understood her need for everything to operate a certain way and to take on more than one person should ever want to, but I couldn't identify with the ways in which she shut people out and led her life cut off from everyone around her. I still don't understand what Seth ...more

Review: Every Little Kiss: The Harvest Cove Series, Book 2 by Kendra Leigh Castle

Rated 3.5 Stars

A pleasant contemporary romance set in a small town. Emma and Seth both have issues from their past that make them cautious but Emma’s seemed a bit of a stretch for me. I loved Seth and did enjoy their blossoming relationship once she relaxed a bit. The romance part was nice and warm and not too graphic. Emma
Reviewed here first:

It was wonderful to return to the lovely coastal town of Harvest Cove and revisit the characters from book one. In Every Little Kiss, we are treated to a love story where both characters have experienced trauma and loss of different kinds and they have a lot to overcome just within themselves before they can truly be together.

Emma Henry grew up with the stigma of being one of the “Henry” girls. The close knit town was not happy when he

This is such a fun, cute story and I enjoyed every minute of it. The second in a delightful small town series that includes some intriguing and quirky characters.

Seth Anderson has lived in Harvest Cove for six months. He wanted to get away from the big city and his family for awhile. He is on the small police force in town and has enjoyed his quiet life.

Emma has lived here her entire life, part of the eccentric Henry family that is both a haven and a curse to her. She is a party planner in town

Every Little Kiss, Harvest Cove #2, by Kendra Leigh Castle
Grade: B+

Emma Henry likes organization and being in control which are great for her party planning business but not so much for her love life. When Emma finally has some fun at her sister’s Sam’s bachelorette party she never expected a video of her reenacting a scene from Flashdance would get around town or that she would beg the new police officer Seth Anderson to take her home. Seth is a distraction Ema can’t afford both professionally

I picked up book 1 in this series totally by chance and immediately fell in love with the small New England town of Harvest Cove. Maybe I was already missing Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series, but I’m finding that this series will certainly fill the void the end of that series left in my heart.

In book 2 – we meet Samantha’s sister Emma. She’s a bit of a type A – likes to be in control and has everything planned out to reach the goals she’s set for herself, leaving romance at the wayside. She ha

Kendra Leigh Castle brings readers the second book in her Harvest Cove series, Every Little Kiss. This is a light-hearted romance that will have reading smiling. With a buttoned up heroine and a military hero, turned cop, there had to be some serious sparks. Castle does a great job with the small town setting and readers will love the quirky characters and down home charm. If you are looking for a great feel good story, this is it!

I loved Every Little Kiss by Kendra Leigh Castle! With a perfect mix of romance, humor and real life, I was quickly immersed in Emma and Seth's lives. I loved these two characters. Emma is unique, strong and determined. She has her own way and view on life, her experiences making her who she is today. She's cautious and difficult for most people to really know. Seth is different though. He is intrigued by her from the first time he sees her. When they actually meet it is highly entertaining and ...more

Somehow I missed the train to Harvest Cove book #2. I don’t know how, since I loved the first book! Nonetheless, the awesome team of Signet reminded me about book #3 and obviously, I had to read Every Little Kiss before.

Like the first book, For the Longest Time, Every Little Kiss is very believable. One can easily relate to these characters, which is one of the reasons why I love them so much. In the second installment of Harvest Cove, we meet Samantha’s sister Emma. Unlike Samantha, Emma loves

This book was such a fun and quick read. I loved being in the town of Harvest Cove and I enjoyed getting to know both Emma and Seth, our main characters. They both had some baggage to deal with and I'm glad that they told each other (eventually) what they were. Towards the end, there was a big "aha! moment that I saw

Emma is an uptight event planner. Her life is organized down to the last detail. Her life is all about her work , her mom and her sister. Seth has joined the police force in the small town of Harvest Cove to start of new life. He has not been the same since he got out of the army. The first and only time Emma gets crazy drunk, Seth comes to her rescue as a police oficer. Neither one of them has their act together enough to even think about being in a relationship, yet that is when you meet the ...more

Fair enough read, though not particularly memorable. The heroine was interesting; while not really an "unconventional heroine" at all, she did have quirks that made her different from most. This was offset by the millions of times she was described as beautiful, stylish, girly, etc, etc (barf). The hero started out nicely, but seemed to be two different characters mashed into one - he started off as helpful and sweet natured, but turned all damaged by the end, and I wasn't sure which he really ...more

I won this book from a contest.

I haven't read the first Harvest Cove book to compare. I thought this book was ok. I wasn't drawn into reading chapter after chapter in a night.

Emma : She was annoying & towards the end I wanted to smack her ( after Seth got shot). She came off mostly self-absorbed. There were moments when she was lovable. I did, however, like Sam, Larkin, and Brynn.

Seth: I can appreciate the author bringing up the issues of PTSD & Domestic Violence.

This was charming, adorable, and sexy. I love a type-A lady who learns to let go and enjoy life, and I love a sexy, honest, and straightforward Army Vet. Lots of fun, and nice to see characters from the first book in the series. Also, Castle does a great job of making the drama that separates the characters before their HEA believable, not annoying (or based on lies), and just long enough to build the tension. I'll continue to read the rest of the books in this series.
Catherine  Wright (Cat's Guilty Pleasure)
This is the type of book that you just fall in love with the further into the story you get. There isn't alot of drama and angst. You have two characters that are a little scared of being in a relationship but with each other's help they learn to navigate and find the balance they both need to fall in love. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book in the series.

Very sweet and enjoyable story. I really liked and empathised with both Seth and Emma, and some of their dialogue (especially when Emma is feeling awkward) really made me laugh! The supporting characters were great too and it was fun to revisit those from For The Longest Time. I'm definitely looking forward to reading Jason and Zoe's story when it's published.
I really, really, really liked Seth but Emma got on my nerves. I didn't really like her in Harvest Cove #1 and while I knew her story would be the next logical installment in the series, I really couldn't get interested in her at all. Despite the fact that I didn't really warm to the main female character, I still really like this series and enjoy the author's pacing and how she sets a scene.

I found this book incredibly slow moving bordering on boring at times. Neither Emma or Seth were that exciting in terms of characters and I struggled to finish the book. While this could have been a great story line it was just lost in over descriptions of everything.

Emma and Seth had a bit to overcome considering they are both a little reserved in their demeanor and what they want to present to the public. I liked this romance because there was so much growth for both of them and their budding romance.

Meh. It just feels like both leads were given too many commitment issues, if not outright phobias at time, and not enough space to really build them up into something believable. There were cute bits, though, like the kitten. Kittens are always good. When in doubt, kitten.

This book was okay. Not great, not bad, but kind of forgettable to me. I'm a little sick of party planners in romance books. Don't any of them have normal jobs?

Fun romance. Emma & Seth learn that they need to communicate better, and after a scare they do. Like that we learn more about Andi (Emma & Sam's mom).
